Microchip’s Trust Platform for its CryptoAuthentication family enables companies of all sizes to easily implement secure authentication. Microchip’s Trust Platform consists of a three-tier offering, providing out-of-the-box pre-provisioned, pre-configured or fully customizable secure elements, allowing developers to choose the platform best suited for their individual design.
As the first solution to provide ready-to-go secure authentication for the mass market, the first tier – Trust&GO – provides zero-touch pre-provisioned secure elements with a Minimum Orderable Quantity (MOQ) as low as 10 units.
Device credentials are pre-programmed, shipped and locked inside the ATECC608A for automated cloud or LoRaWAN authentication onboarding. In parallel, corresponding certificates and public keys are delivered in a “manifest” file, which is downloadable via Microchip’s purchasing e-commerce store and select distribution partners.
In addition to saving up to several months of development time, the solution significantly simplifies provisioning logistics, making it easy for mass market customers to secure and manage edge devices without the overhead cost of third-party provisioning services or certificate authorities.
With the ability to authenticate to any public or private cloud infrastructure, Microchip’s Trust Platform is also flexible and customizable.
“The uptick in successful attacks on software-based security solutions underscores the need for companies to adopt industry best practices, including isolating private keys in secure elements,” said Nuri Dagdeviren, vice president of Microchip’s secure products business unit. “Microchip’s Trust Platform makes hardware-based security simple and cost-effective for companies of all sizes to implement, removing the barriers traditionally associated with configuring and provisioning devices.”
Microchip worked with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable a straightforward and simplified onboarding process into AWS IoT services for products designed with all variants of the Microchip Trust Platform.
